Jaye Pratt will tell you she has dreams about Love Road Sanctuary, the daytime kind. She, and the rest of the people involved in Love Road, want to release as many as 1200 horse at the sanctuary. They want to give people an opportunity to experience and photograph these magnificent animals in free roaming herds. They also want to conserve the New Mexico land and habitat, the culture.
